Well, PHP month has come and gone. My main objective was to learn how to use PHP within WordPress, which I got a good start on. The first part of the month I spent some time digging into theme files and page templates in some of the work I was doing. I didn’t really learn to code PHP that way, but I was at least getting familiar with how PHP works and I was able to make some basic changes. I’ll continue my learning this month as well, as I dive into a book or two, and maybe an online tutorial. Hopefully, I’ll actually start learning to code, and not just edit other’s code.
On to October, which is a refrain month. This months refrain could easily fall into either an embrace or refrain category, depending on how I approach it. From the beginning of this blog, one of my ideas was to embrace getting up early. However, getting up early is really just refraining from sleeping in! And that is just what I’ll be working on this month.
For many of my monthly projects, I have a tendency to set goals that are difficult to attain. I end up only partially fulfilling those goals. When I worked on solitude, I was effectively practicing solitude very little, and then went to trying it every day. I didn’t quite make it. I did the same thing with attempting to blog every day. This month, I am going to go about it more gradually. I normally get up around 7:15-7:30. This week, I am going to get up at 7. Then next week, I’ll try to get up at 6:30. By the end of the month, we’ll see if I can’t be getting up at 6 or maybe even 5:30. But really… I am NOT a morning person, so we will just take it one day at a time!
